General information for and about students in the Department

The Department of Psychiatry is committed to high quality leadership in undergraduate & clinical teaching and graduate research (taught and research-based).

For any general student enquiries not answered on these pages, please contact our Education Administrator, Olga Plocienniczak, in the first instance on 01223 746105.

The Department currently has over 45 graduate students embarking on research degrees (mostly Ph.D.s but we also have some students conducting research-based M.Phil.s). Students are hosted across all our different groups, engaging in research as divserse as genetics, psychology, neuroimaging and epidemiology. We are also actively involved in clinical teaching in the University of Cambridge, as well as graduate teaching on various M.Phil. programs.

Graduate students also contribute actively to the development and life of the Department. Two graduate students are appointed as student representatives on our Graduate Education Committee, which ensures that our students are represented at the Department level. You can find the current student representatives here. Our students also run and maintain webpages which contain useful information for students studying at the University of Cambridge. Current and prospective students are encouraged to use this resource. More information about life as a research student at the University of Cambridge can be found at the Board of Graduate Studies website.

On these pages you will find more information about what kind of teaching and research we do, information about how to apply for graduate study within the Department, and further information for new and existing students.
